p.The merry band enters the mansion to a room with a bookshelf with a copy of The Hunger Games that seems untouched but has a bookmark in the middle of it so it looks like someone has been reading it (see article on The Hunger Games and its place in the culture of Lonely Eira).
They find a note that has been recently written on the table.
The note says that Johanes came to this same mansion to interview a former cult member named Marcus. The merry band tricked a ghost and got around their trap, escaped form a mimic, fought a chair, fought some tree babs. They got to the second floor of the mansion and fought a couple more tree babs. They followed a blood stain on the floor until Nikolai poked his head into a hole in the floor into a room with Marcus possessing and killing Johanes. Nikolai threw a huge lucky critical firebolt at Marcus taking his health down very low. Marcus then brought Nikolai to 2 health but before anyone could do anything a second Nikolai fireboIt kills Marcus. Gump and Keith kill his two tree bab henchmen.
After the battle Gump cast cure wounds on Johanes and brought him back to stable condition. After that they decided to bring Johanes to town for him to heal up but before they do that they find a room with three magical books. Gump’s book just had one page that said Eliniua seligis rinzil and it have him the power to phase through walls for one minute everyday. Nikolai’s book gave him the power to open simple locks with his hand. Keith’s book gave him the power to create giant beanstalks with magic beans. it is basically an instant bean stalk ladder.
